Hope Works Chicago Thank You Letter
Standing Strong With Maywood
Dear Mr. Lerner,
I am writing to thank you once again for your donation towards my film. With your donation towards the film screening event which was able to not only provide snacks for guests but also raffles, I was able to finish up my 501.c3 process, and have already got my IRS determination letter back, recognizing me as a federal non-profit.
The film is a documentary that focuses on the point, that even after an injury, there can be life. However, that is only if you get the proper rehabilitation, as most of the times the rehab process can more damaging in itself, but more over it focuses on the ADA and the EEOC speaking for us like they are supposed to.
This film is supposed to be a start up to my organization, it was designed to drive more traffic to my website, and interest in the organization so I can get more donations to my crowd sourcing campaign. Working with the disabled is not always easy. Often times with people in general you just can’t verbally say what your purpose is without showing what it is.
At the film screening event I used Charlie Chaplin as an illustrative, comparing a silent film star to the silence of disability. You see in Charlie Chaplin’s time the film industry stated that film is the best way to communicate your point, to open new doors, to introduce a new way of thinking. Now days you’ll see that your Hollywood caliber films just starting to include disabilities in their films, but only at an entertaining perspective, generating more interest about disability, but still not enough to inform people or to prepare them for having to live in the real world with people with challenges.
Brain Injury Productions Inc. hopes to remedy this by putting people in a virtual simulator, showing them this is what you have to deal with, and because the ADA, and the EEOC are in place you cannot just dis-include these people. Half the time those challenged do not even know there is something going on with them.
Thank you again so very much for your donation. I look forward to continue doing business with you in the future.
